BTC Auto Collision Repair


I am Andrew Riggs, I am the Auto Collision Repair instructor for Bellingham Technical College
and I spend my time teaching people how to fix wrecked cars
We give our students the ability to learn
a trade and actually be able to go out and
get a job and hold a job
We hold our classes a lot like a job, you’ve
got to be here on time, you’ve got to be ready
to go when the clock starts and use your time wisely
There is a lot of theory to learn in a very
short amount of time, but what really gets
them ready for this industry is our hands-on work in the shop, tearing things down,
putting it back together
Every car you get is a new challenge so you’re doing something different every single time
The industry is hurting so badly, we’ve had offers to pay to relocate promising students
to go work in facilities in New York and Hawaii and Alaska
This program has really prepared me to get a job out in the workforce, something that
I am happy to do every day
We have a great facility and I am very enthusiastic about what we’re doing and my goal is to make
this the top of the line collision and repair
facility in the Northwest
The knowledge I’ve learned at Bellingham Technical College will really set me in the right direction
